Barn Wedding

I'm currently working on wedding stationery for a Barn Wedding. The Bride and I go way back so I'm really excited about this project since she's putting a lot of trust in me. You don't always get that creative trust/freedom with clients you don't have a history with. 

I have a pretty clear vision for the stationery and I'm excited to post a little taste of what it looks like so far. I designed a mark for the couple using a new typeface Gulyesa Script, which I bought because I really didn't want to use Lady Rene for another wedding (Bride's love Lady Rene. It's crazy) and they're in the same ballpark. For the mark I had to modify the "B" because I wasn't thrilled with the shape of it. 

After the mark, I moved to the Save The Date, which will be a postcard with one of the couple's engagement photos on the front with the mark. I did 3 different versions of a postcard (one traditional, one informal and one that's a compromise) and below is the one my client picked. I'm pretty happy with it and excited because I will be screenprinting 130 of these myself on walnut wood veneer that I ordered from a a woodworking supplier called Rockler. The walnut is on backover, so you can imagine that I am beyond eager to get this in time to cut, print, mount to the photo, and then deliver to my client so she can send them out in place of Holiday Cards. Since it's November 11th I'm getting nervous, but I'm sure it'll all work out.
